OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
E. Jean Carroll, the woman who accused former President Donald trump of sexually assaulting her and was awarded $5 million when a jury sided with her, just had an old Facebook post surface that is going to have the former president smiling as he plots his appeal.
In a Facebook post from 2012 the author asked her followers what shows they like to watch on Sunday night but then things got real interesting.
“Two many good TV shows on Sunday Night! My God! What do YOU watch?” she said in the post dated April 22, 2012.
Other than spelling “too” incorrectly the post was not that interesting, until you read the comments and she shares what show she is a “massive fan” of.
In it she said “I’m a MASSIVE Apprentice fan.”
The thread is, as of this story, still live on Facebook and you can access it here and see her comments for yourself.
The possibility exists that she will delete the thread, or her comment, but then again she may not as she has already been caught and Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a screenshot of the comment.
“This seems like a perfectly normal thing to say given the accusations?!? Unless, of course, the accusations were totally fabricated and made up recently as a political hit job,” Trump Jr. said.

Now legally we have to say that is possible to be a fan of a show that starred the person who said raped you and that post alone does not prove that she lied to the court and the media.
It is curious that she would be a “massive fan” of a show in which she had to watch the man, she claimed, raped her.
A person may think that looking at the face of a person who committed a violent sexual assault against you could be traumatizing.
But, unless she was being sarcastic, and she gave no indication that she was, apparently Carroll had no issue watching him.
May of the commenters were skeptical of her claims against Trump in light of the post surfacing.
“A MASSIVE APPRENTICE FAN??? WHY WOULD YOU BE A FAN OF A SHOW OF A MAN YOU WOULD YEARS LATER ACCUSE OF RAPE? YOU ARE A FRAUD AND I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU CAN LIVE WITH YOURSELF. YOU ARE HURTING ALL TRUE SURVIVORS. I HOPE HE SUES YOU BACK AND WINS!” another person said.
“I’ve never been raped but I don’t know if I would like the TV show hosted by my rapist,” another person said.
“Perfectly normal to be a HUGE fan of the “rapist that ruined your life”, right E. Jean Carroll? You vile, lying, money grubbing, lunatic slag!” another said.
“Massive Apprentice Fan???? How are you a fan of the show who’s star is DJT? You know, the one you said (raped) you all those years ago??? I hope our amazing POTUS sues your ass for everything you have. You are a disgrace to women who are true victims of sexual assault. Who put you up to this???” one person said three years ago.
“Massive Apprentice Fan!!!! Let’s see if you will delete your post!!!” another said.
“A “MASSIVE” Apprentice fan???????? You slapped the faces of true rape victims, you fraud!!!” one woman said.
“Why are you a fan of a guy that supposedly raped you?” another incredulous person queried.
A Manhattan jury reached a verdict Tuesday in the case involving E. Jean Carroll’s civil lawsuit against former President Donald Trump. Carroll alleged that Trump sexually assaulted her in a department store dressing room in the 1990s.
The jury ruled that “Trump more likely than not sexually abused E. Jean Carroll” and determined that Trump defamed Carroll.
The jury considered whether to hold Trump liable for battering Carroll and for defaming her and, if so, whether she deserves to be paid damages.
